Arts on the Credit is in the early stages of plans for a new show ARTWEAR. 

An ARTWEAR show that will go far beyond jewellery and accessories. We will also feature millinery and a wide array of one of a kind original clothing, vests, wraps, dresses, coats and complete outfits. Some artwear will be knit, some felted, and some awesome upcycled accessories.

Stay tuned as this new, exciting venture develops!

What is wearable art?

Wearable art means different things to different people. Sometimes it becomes costume-like, very experimental and most outrageous. Other times it is very wearable everyday and suitable for many ordinary occasions or it might become very special and elaborate, but still is suitable to wear to that very special event.

In our case, the clothes you will find at Arts on the Credit: ARTWEAR are meant to be worn and enjoyed every day. You will feel comfortable wearing our creations, but will still stand out from the crowd. These will be creations not found on the shelves of the local retail stores or the big box outlets. They are artist designed and made and are one of a kind in most cases. The techniques used to make and embellish these designs are labour intensive, sometimes becoming a collaboration between a few textile artists that may be skilled in different areas of design and construction. Wearable art is not fashion, not trendy, but meant to be timeless.

“Wearable art exists somewhere at the intersection of art, craft and fashion. It is of all three, but is owned wholly by none of them.” Melissa Leventon
